400 Level Nursing Mother On Bail, Re-Arrested Over Drug Peddling

 Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have Re-arrested a nursing mother over alleged peddling in drugs.

The suspect, identified as Mariam Adetilewa, a 35 year old 400 level student of International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of Benin was reportedly arrested for transporting some parcels of drugs to Delta State from Lagos.
She is said to have been arrested barely a week after being granted bail for attempting to smuggle drugs concealed in cassava flour meal called “akpu” into NDLEA cell for a suspect in custody.
The agency’s Director of Media and Advocacy Femi Babafemi confirmed the arrest in a release made available to journalists on Sunday.
” Barely a week after she was arrested and granted bail for attempting to smuggle drugs concealed in cassava flour meal called ‘akpu’ into NDLEA cell for a suspect in custody, a nursing mother who claims to be a part-time 400-level student of International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of Benin, Mariam Adetilewa Dirisu has again been arrested for trafficking in 5kg skunk and 8.1grams of Molly.

The 35-year-old mother of a 2 month-old-baby was first arrested on 21st October by the Edo state Command of the Agency.
Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) had on the same day directed that she be counselled and released immediately because of the young baby she was carrying.
Curiously, a controlled delivery operation carried out by operatives of the Delta state Command of the Agency on Saturday 30th October again led to the arrest of Mariam who had ordered for the drugs from Lagos even while still on bail for an earlier offence”.
